Legislative Leaders Sue Quinn Over Salary Veto


Illinois lawmakers are suing Governor Pat Quinn... contending that his veto of their salaries is unconstitutional. 

 

Quinn zeroed out the budget line for legislative pay this month in an attempt to force the legislature to pass pension reform.  The suit from House Speaker Mike Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton says the governor's action violates the separation of powers and threatens the independence of the General Assembly as a co-equal branch of government.
